|Benjamin||Cornwell||Sociology||Implications of Course Enrollment Structure for the Potential of Epidemic Spread on a College Campus||

We will evaluate how clusters of course offerings, the timing of courses throughout the week, and mode of class instruction affect the structure of this network. We will also assess how students with different majors, level in school, gender, and race occupy different positions within the network.
